    Just a heads up for everyone. I've rolled out a new version of the main portion of PatsFans.com addressing a lot of the concerns posted in the original survey we did a month or so ago. Unfortunately one thing worth noting is the fact that the forum template is just a slight modification and is only temporary - it isn't the final version. I'm still working out some kinks with vbulletin that has preventing me from finishing it, but you'll see a cool new version of this place once I'm finished.

    Otherwise I'll have more information on Monday about what's new, and there will be another cool thing coming in time for the Houston game for those of you who follow the game here online :cool:

    I like the new look - it is cleaner which is much more appealing to me.

    I feel like VB is beginning to show its age but I think you're doing well with it.

    It is. I'm not thrilled with the newer versions they've come out with after this one, which is why I've resisted changing and have focused on improving on it on my own in terms of the layout, some plugins, etc. So that may come into play here going forward, but I thought it was interesting you read my mind about that :cool:

    Answering like a true Patriots fan too :). "We just try to make it a better site, it is a day to day thing."

    Cleaner look which is good. Love the site, and the forum and appreciate the hard work you put in Ian. Once I sort out my credit card situation I'll happily become a contributor.

    Thanks again, Ian, for all the work you do for this site. I don't care how it finally shakes out, as long as it's here for us to use.

    I'd go right off the deep end if I didn't get my daily fix here. :)
